2/8 What is at stake with biometric surveillance? Our reality as we know it! We must protect our democratic public spaces– and with them, our freedoms to speak, to assemble, to protest and to express ourselves.

#BanThisBS #FacialRecognition
3/8 Europe, right now 🇪🇺: more than 15 countries have secretly experimented with harmful #Biometric systems like #FacialRecognition in public spaces. They have often ignored existing laws & showed no respect for democracy or critical public opinion.

Was wäre, wenn unter #Augsburg #Braunkohle läge?

Der Tagebau #Garzweiler2 im Rheinischen Braunkohlerevier ist 48 km² groß.
Das entspricht 1/3 der Gesamtfläche Augsburgs (146,84 km²).

Ein Thread
Wenn #RWE in Augsburg einen Tagebau, genauso groß wie Garzweiler 2, betreiben würde, dann wäre die Innenstadt weg. Ebenso Teile von Oberhausen, Lechhausen, der Rand von Hochzoll, der Kuhsee, der obere Teil des Siebentischwalds, Spickel und Herrenbach und ein Teil des Hochfelds.
Die Bahnstrecke vom Bahnhof Morellstraße bis zum Bahnhof Oberhausen wäre die #L277, die gerade abgerissen werden sollte und die wir gerade besetzen würden.

Congressman John Lewis once said “Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic.”

What makes you hopeful? Seriously. Share it!

If you’re like me, you could use a few reasons to keep your head up.

Here are 50 reasons to stay hopeful from the past 3+ years.
50. On Jan. 28, 2017, thousands showed up to airports in support of Muslim families impacted by Trump’s unconstitutional #MuslimBan.

That night, a federal judge in NY issued a stay allowing people stranded in airports to temporarily avoid deportation.

49. Much to the dismay of Donald Trump, #Parasite won Best Picture at the Oscars, making it the first non-English language film to win in the 92 years of the Academy Awards.

In the days that social life is more in the digital realm than physical, Do we forget about those who are offline? Those that are not covered by the news?

A country's internet is shut down, 82 million people's access to the outside world is denied, their work, their families, all separated.

I browsed the news on @AppleNews, 54 hours after the shutdown has started:

Spoiler alert: "No coverage of #IranianProtests".

1. New #QAnon today is related to ousted Ukraine Ambassador #Yovanovitch having ordered our country's State Dept. to spy on our own American journalists and Trump allies.
2. You see, "America is no longer for sale."
Because, "It’s been a long time since we’ve had a non-corrupt President who works on behalf of the American people and not himself." #QAnon #Q
3. #QAnon "You are witnessing the largest ‘organized’ disinformation campaign to ever be perpetuated on the public.
Trust yourself.

I mean—you KNOW the system is BROKEN when 99% of people are stuck in the audience while less than 0.1% gets to be on stage.

Coachella is the worst—just disgusting inequality.

Same with sports. 99% stuck in stands while the 1%-ers are on the field or court.

amirite @zavaindar
Also RIDICULOUS that we allow MONOPOLIES of sneakers— less than 1% of shoe companies — basically 2 establishment brands (Nike + Adidas)

CONTROL like 90% of the shoes everyday people wear.

#powertothepeople #makeourownshoes #freeyourfeet
I will not rest in fight against inequality until EVERYONE is on one stage or one field together.

Remove the arbitrary boundaries.
Remove the oppressive security guards.
#onestage um..everyone on it.

Let's have a discussion about @realDonalTrump's recent battle cry, calling Democrats 'socialists.' Is it woeful ignorance or intentional obfuscation? The terms Marxism, #Socialism & Communism are often used interchangeably. They are not remotely the same.
2/ Let's examine different systems & look at some differences. There are varying forms of Marxist/Leninist Communism (RU), Socialism, Capitalism & mixed systems. Communist China has a mixed market economy, w/private or state sectors controlling certain entities such as media.
3/ France, Italy & other European countries use free market economies but also incorporate socialist programs such as Universal Healthcare & free education. The U.S. is a Capitalist mixed economy, which also includes socialistic programs such as ...

Fuck the idea that challenging toxic norms of traditional monogamy is a “university PhD thesis worthy idea.” I learned the most about #polyamory from ppl w/out degrees. Fuck the idea that ppl without formal higher education “have less complicated stuff going on in their heads”
If folks need examples of the wide variety of people who practice non-monogamy is a number of ways, under different circumstances, I recommend checking out @PolyRoleModels

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

We met earlier today with His Excellency, Okezie Ikpeazu, the Governor of Abia State and engaged productively for over an hour - we'll report the discussions later.

Right now, if you're out friend in Aba, do send @MrStanleyNwabia or @chosensomto a text to chill together tonight.
Can't talk enough yet about how much of a fantastic host @hartng has been - but the hearts of all six of us here on ground are filled with nothing but gratitude.

We'll do a proper tour of the state tomorrow but tonight by 8pm, we want to interact with our friends in this area.
So pls send @chosensomto or @MrStanleyNwabia a DM asap - we can't come here and not interact with our friends who live here.

The continued detention of @GovAyoFayose by @officialEFCC is for some of us a confirmation that the caricature anti-corruption body is yet another arm of @OfficialAPCNg like @inecnigeria and @PoliceNG and in competence to fight corruption: absolutely inept like @MBuhari himself.
The major case Fayose is being investigated for is the matter of monies received from Dasuki - which EFCC in about 3 years of Dasuki’s detention has not been able to prove successfully to the point of calling witnesses to testify against him, not to speak of convicting Dasuki.
Yet, EFCC illegally continues to treat anything related to the Dasuki matter as though the man has been convicted - this explains why they went to great lengths ab initio to try Dasuki in the media and convict him in the minds of APC supporters who get high on ‘anti-kwaruption’.
